FC: To: Brenda Keltner From: Jessica Buschkoetter
1: Merry Christmas Brenda. I hope that this journey has been a great one for you. May you always know that in anything you do, we believe in you. May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
2: “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
3: ...What's this? ..... a lemon with a fork in it?...
5: “I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me, I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be; I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day, as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.”
7: “If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.”

13: “I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry.”
16: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
19: A family is pieced together with hope and faith. A family is quilted and bound with love and grace.
22: Laughter is the universal language.
23: To share laughter is to connect in ways we do not yet understand.
24: “Life ends when you stop dreaming, hope ends when you stop believing, love ends when you stop caring, friendship ends when you stop sharing... so share this with whom ever you consider a friend.”
25: “""Dreams are like the paints of a great artist. Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas. Believing, is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality."
26: “Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends.”
27: Brenda, I blame this mess of friends that i have on you! But I truly thank you for always being there for me, and for being the reason that I have such amazing friends, you are the one that introduced us after all. I know that I was truly blessed with you were my roommate my freshman year. I wish you the best of luck with your last semester,and where eve life will take you from here. And may you always know that I believe in you. I thank you and I love you! Love, Jessica
